ICSE Board To Undergo Major Changes

Bhubaneswar: In the road map discussed by educators from ICSE affiliate schools across the country at the 58th annual general meeting started here on Wednesday, schools affiliated to the CISCE board will undergo a major revamp in syllabus, infrastructure, teachers' training and modernization.

"The way we read, learn, work, communicate and find information have changed drastically in the last few years. The implication of these changes is tremendous in all walks of life. We need to rethink our practices as educators in response to these changes and this is why we are here," said secretary-treasurer of Association of Schools for the Indian School Certificate (ASISC), K V Vincent.

 

The participants in the three-day meeting including over 1200 principals from various schools would discuss on how to bring in a major revamp in the syllabus and examination as per the need of the hour. This year's theme is 'Education in a changing world'.

Governor S C Jamir inaugurating the event said, "Technology has become an inseparable part of education and has come a great way from the parrot like pedagogy that was prevalent a few years ago. It has helped learning anywhere, anytime. It's no more limited to classrooms. However, in spite of all these I would firmly say that technology is never a substitute for a teacher."
